Hu Jundi was born in 1962 in Juilin Province, China. He graduated from Sichuan Fine Art Institute in 1984. Hu’s work has been exhibited and collected in China and other Asian countries as well as in Europe and America.
His work is different from the oil paintings that we often see. His brilliance is in the harmonious blend of traditional Chinese brushwork with the unmatched depth of oils. His paintings are completely Chinese, with colors of the Sichuan environment. They are harmonious with incomplete borders. So when we first see these paintings, we feel the combination of the light, color and flow of the East, but the oils give them a more universal, lasting appeal. Hu is one of the first and very few Chinese painters that are able to brilliantly meld the two cultures together with complete integrity. Hu’s work is full of dense Chinese colors -- the lush atmosphere and Sichuan’s warm moisture are floating in the paintings — and this hooks the audience instantly to his canvas melodies.
He paints elegant, serene and beautiful Sichuan women. The attire is classical Sichuan Chinese, but there is an appeal that goes beyond. He does not use models. He paints the character in his mind, searching from a person in his life. He chooses the most wonderful moment in his mind and paints it. Catching a moment -- this is the Chinese painting skill. It is much more difficult to do it with oil paintings. It took years of patient trial and error, along with his immense talent, to achieve this mastery.

COMMENTS FROM THE CRITICS:
“Most talented master. His work is full of dense Chinese colors and lush atmosphere. Sichuan’s warm and moist air is floating through his paintings. I was captivated instantly to the melodies on his canvas.” -- Zhong Biao, Artist, Director, Chonqing Art Museum.
“Hu’s works are beautiful inside and outside because he knows how to control emotions with a brush. He has the ability to ‘fathom’ a word and image, go deeper into the meaning to convey it with paint: it is thinner here, it is thicker there, it is deeper here and it is misty there...
“He uses his eyes to “listen” like a musician. These paintings tell and color the poem.” -- Zhao Benjia.
“Songs and poems touch me, I want to paint the poem and the song” – Hun Jun Di.
In fact the poems and the songs are in his heart. He expresses them on the canvas.
